Yet Another Major Difference Between Liberals and Conservatives


America's Original RIGHT


  Today's LEFT

Conservatives seem to know that business and government have been increasingly intertwined over the last century and they almost universally recognize that as a very bad thing. The “political economy” (Corporatism or “Crony Capitalism”) is NOT the free and open market of Capitalism at all. It is nearly as far from economic LIBERTY/freedom as the Command (government-run) Economy is.

Moreover, both the corporately owned media and government subsidized education complex are, and have long been both overwhelmingly and unabashedly pro-BIG-government and anti-individualism and personal LIBERTY.

The Tea Party movement is a grassroots response to the Keynesian (pro-BIG-government Moderate Republicans) seeking to steer that Party’s agenda Center-Left. It began shortly after the 2008 election, when the Keynesian Moderates were able to steer one of their own (John McCain) into the role of the GOP’s standard bearer.

Only with the White House’s very recent support of Blanche Lincoln (D-AK) have some Liberals begun howling at the Democratic establishment for seeking to steer that Party’s agenda Center-Left instead of far-left.

The more prescient and engaged Conservative Americans saw the abuse within their own primary Party before the less engaged, and frankly less intelligent Leftists/“Liberals” saw the same within theirs. For the Obama administration had been steadily working AGAINST the interests and agenda of the far-Left fringe (less than 5% of the nation) that calls themselves “his base.”

These Leftists STILL don’t understand the deep connection between business and government and STILL don’t understand why elected Liberal Dems have to “play ball” with big business interests ahead of any “far-Left agenda.”

I know that none of this is all that surprising, given that the Left has always been a little slow on the uptake.

Hi Maria! I've been jammed up recently.....I'm currently in "Rescue School" - 1 week down, 2 to go, so I haven't been online as much as I'd like.

Yeah, that 2nd picture is astounding (in a disgusting sort of way) isn't it?

Very revealing in that the deep-seated lie about the Left -- that they are the "party of compassion" -- is exposed for all to see, in one starkly clear picture.

There really is a perverse irony in the fact that the sycophantic Left, so taken with their imagined "intellectual status," consistently find themselves "a little slow on the uptake," when it comes to rooting out calumny (against their own stated agenda) from purported "Leftist" pols.
